  1. Brought back many memories. I used to live next door to John, Catherine and Libbie McEwen, no longer sadly with us, and Angela Iverson was a friend of my sisters and would often come to stay with us. John went on the marry Veronica (no longer with us). Whilst at Ecclesfield Grammar School I was a Cub Master and begun running dances to live bands in Grenoside Scout Hut in 1957 and went on to manage Peter York and the Pontiacs, Dean Marshall and the Deputies, singers Johnny Burns, Ronnie Coy, Terry Stuart and Terry Slade (real name Terry Alcock), together with pianist Parkin Loy and conjuror David Dixon. Sadly I turned down the opportunity to manage Vance Arnold and the Avengers (Jo Cocker). Until 1964 I regularly promoted pop concert / dances at the Newton Hall, Chapeltown; Gatty Hall, Ecclesfield; Clifton Hall , Rotherham and booked acts from Cleethorpes Pier, in the East, to the Floral Hall in Morecombe, in the West, and from Leeds to Newark and regularly in the City Hall and Cutlers Hall in Sheffield. Happy days!! My main career was in social work and Local Government and was Director of Social Services for South Glamorgan County Council. More recently I had an association with The Zimmers and have been presenting a weekly radio programme for the last twelve years. Chris
